The musician decided to skip the Los Angeles ceremony to stay at home with his family, and John learned he had won Best R&B Album for Bigger Love while he was helping Chrissy cook dinner in the kitchen.
The model, TV personality, and cookbook author chronicled the moment on social media, as she said: “John, you just won R&B album of the year! How are you going to celebrate?”
Dressed in a Versace bathrobe, John smiled and replied: “By mincing garlic!” as he continued with his task.
He later took to Instagram to express his joy at the award, writing: “So grateful to win my 12th Grammy today, my 3rd for Best R&B Album!”
He went on: “Thank you to all my collaborators on #BiggerLove, especially my big brother and executive producer @raphael_saadiq. Thank you to my entire team,” and added that making the album during the pandemic wasn’t an easy task.
However, John’s failure to give his wife and kids a shout out didn’t sit well with Chrissy, who remarked in the comments: “hello?????”
She also shared a screenshot of John’s Instagram acceptance speech on Twitter, and wrote: “this motherf**ker ???? helloooo?? caption (sic)!!!!”
Despite the snub, Chrissy decided to dress up for the main event as they settled in at home to watch on TV.
Sharing a photo of herself glammed up in a black corset-style dress, with John still wearing his bathrobe and silk pants, she wrote: “House Grammys 2021!!!”
